Nuevo Vallarta along the Pacific coast. It will be a welcome sight, believe me.

4212847

That looks fantastic! How long will you be there?

MM...........you have to check out Canmore.........it is due South of Banff and only 20 minutes away.......

Absolutely SPECTACULAR...........your right in the Foot of the Rockies and there are TONS of Hiking Trails in the area.........start of your day you wake up in the morning in Canmore go to Tims for a coffee and a  Maple Walnut Muffin................. VERY CANADIAN THING TO DO........lol

The Scenery is incredible and you will love hiking in the area.

We were planning on stopping through there on our way to Banff! Have you ever been to the brewery there?

As for the discussions about F.I.P.'s, that reminds me of a guy I know who lives in Maine and they refer to all the visitors they receive from Boston/Massachusetts as Massholes because of the way they drive.  Very funny stuff.

As for my home turf.... we here in New Jersey are simply known as "Jersey Drivers".... which in and of itself might be damning because everyone knows the term and it isn't considered a positive.

Maybe everyone has their own word for it...up in northern Michigan where I'm from we call them Fudgies because they eat the Mackinac Island fudge. haha1

Well, you definitely don't want a football team such as the Rhein Fire (WLAF), with that kind of issue.

Someone will need to refresh my memory as to how to get into the league.  I believe it was on ESPN's site, correct?

That's the one! We definitely plan on checking that out. Craft breweries are pretty big over here in Michigan...in fact they call Grand Rapids "Beer City USA".

We've still got a couple weeks...hopefully the fires die down.

One of the great perks of ESPN leagues is that you don't have to rejoin every year. If you log into your ESPN account you should be able to get to our league home page using this link: http://games.espn.com/ffl/leagueoffice?leagueId=352422 (or in my signature).

Pretty good response so far - 7 in already with the other 5 pending still.

Well Trumpet.  As I recall from my business trip to New Jersey about a year and a half ago,  I seem to remember the driving style as ..................... unique.  rofl

As far as Fantasy football...... A big yes!!   HOWEVER, as usual, I am having issues getting logged in to the ESPN site.  I think my computer at home will get there, but I may have to create a new account.  I'll get it sorted out.

Progress at least! I have the Lake Louise weather on my phone now and it's saying there is a chance of rain there on Sunday and Monday...here's to hoping!

I fly out there one week from today.

Sounds good - let me know if you need a new invite.

That makes 10 returning for this year! Jedi and Ktopp are still pending. As I just posted in the league, due to the vacation I will not be able to draft until after the 26th. Does anyone have specific draft days/times that work or don't work?

That looks fantastic! How long will you be there?

We were there for a week. Just got back last night at 1:30AM my time and had to get up for work at 5AM. Yikes!!

It was fantastic! Weather was great but very hot this time of year. We were at an all inclusive resort so the kids were loving ordering food and drinks whenever they wanted. And it was a lot easier on me too. We mostly hung around the resort pool and ocean but we did get down to Puerto Vallarta for a zip lining tour, which was amazing! Zip lining 1800ft across and 700ft over a raging river is pretty incredible. Plus the "scenery" at the resort was very nice.....if you know what I mean...yawza!

Yikes, hopefully you don't have to do a whole lot today at work. That sounds awesome! ber

Ziplining is intense...I've done it a couple times but nothing quite like that.

Do you want to play Infinity Fantasy Football again this year?

Yes I can play again this year but I'm forewarning you that I probably won't be able to make it to any draft no matter when it is. But I can autodraft and deal with what I get.

Can I post pics on here from a file on my computer? Or do they need to have a hyperlink?

Okay, no worries! Glad to have you back!

That makes all 12 players returning! ber

I think I'm going to set a draft day before I leave, then I will edit it if needed when I return.

Well for some reason I can only post that 1 pic. It won't let me do anymore.

I think there is a restriction on either the number of pictures, the size of pictures, or both for each post. Are you able to attach another one to a new post?

Either way that looks like quite a thrill!!

Yes she is. She got her craziness from me. Even her 17-year old brother wouldn't do that.

And for FF drafts, like I said, I won't be there anyways. Sept 1st I am actually out of town again. So autodraft is what I have to suffer through no matter what date you guys decide.
